Celebrate Earth Day every day with the Bee Game!
Play games guilt free - tell your parents its your homework for Sustainability!
Gladys and I celebrated Earth Day on April 22 by playing with this interactive Google Doodle. You guide your bee to pollinate flowers while learning fun facts about bees and our planet that they help to sustain. Did you know that bees pollinate 1 out of every 3 bites of food that you eat!?
Created by the Honeybee Conservancy and Doodler Gerben Steenks, who said:
"We hope people understand the importance of bees to the earth and humanity. For those who want to take action, anyone can have a positive impact by growing pollen-producing plants!"
This #EarthDay, as we stay at home, let’s take a moment to appreciate the smaller things in life that make a big difference – such as the hardworking bees, and the sweet things they do for us.
Beyond learning about sustainability challenges through playing and making educational games, one thing you can do is encourage your family and friends to avoid using pesticides on their lawns, especially to kill dandelions - pesticides are killing bees and dandelions are an important early spring food source for them.
Let’s 🐝 there for them!
